Zamfara 2023: APC commends court judgement nullifying PDP primaries

The All Progressives Congress (APC) primary poll that produced Senator Emmanuel Bwacha as its candidate for governor in the 2023 general election has been declared invalid by the Federal High Court in Abuja.

The Zamfara chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) hailed the Court of Appeal in Sokoto on Wednesday for nullifying the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) governorship primaries in the state.

This was announced in a statement released on Wednesday in Gusau by Malam Yusuf Idris, the state’s publicity secretary for the APC.

In a statement, the APC said, “The APC leadership under the leadership of Alhaji Tukur Danfulani described the judgement that sacked PDP governorship candidate in the state, Dr Dauda Lawal-Dare, as keeping to the rule of law.

“The is PDP facing its consequences for violating the rule of law.”

The PDP members have “continuously refused to agree that Nigeria has advanced and that the law is no respecter of anyone,” Idris said.

Idris stated that the APC in the state had settled its internal disputes without resorting to legal action.

“We also wish to uphold and inform the good people of the state that, as it is, APC will continue to be the winning party in the state and the nation at large.”

In addition, “APC will also continue to receive new entrants under a peaceful atmosphere,” Idris said.
